Novel water-soluble decacationically armed C(60) and C(70) decaiodide monoadducts, C(60)- and C(70)[>M(C(3)N(6)(+)C(3))(2)], were synthesized, characterized, and applied as photosensitizers and potential nano-PDT agents against pathogenic bacteria and cancer cells. A high number of cationic charges per fullerene cage and H-bonding moieties were designed for rapid binding to the anionic residues displayed on the outer parts of bacterial cell walls. In the presence of a high number of electron-donating iodide anions as parts of quaternary ammonium salts in the arm region, we found that C(70)[>M(C(3)N(6)(+)C(3))(2)] produced more HO(•) than C(60)[>M(C(3)N(6)(+)C(3))(2)], in addition to (1)O(2). This finding offers an explanation of the preferential killing of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria by C(60)[>M(C(3)N(6)(+)C(3))(2)] and C(70)[>M(C(3)N(6)(+)C(3))(2)], respectively. The hypothesis is that (1)O(2) can diffuse more easily into porous cell walls of Gram-positive bacteria to reach sensitive sites, while the less permeable Gram-negative bacterial cell wall needs the more reactive HO(•) to cause real damage.
